When we say that something is dark, we can mean a lot of things. This word is used as a synonym for deep, psychological, psychotic, or violent. Today, we are going to talk about anime. We can say dark anime for Japanese animated tv shows who depict violent and s*xual content. Mostly, Anime isn`t within the genre we call horror. The reason is that they are usually, for an audience older than twelve years. Now, we are going to present you with the best dark anime you can watch. But if you are new to Anime and just want to know what to watch first. Here’s a list of anime that worth watching.
Black Bullet is very similar to another anime show called AOT. It depicts a monster who is trying to drive the human race to extinction. From our point of view, it doesn’t have the most original story you have ever seen, but it makes up with its mature themes, philosophy, mystery, and action. This is one of the best dark anime you can find on the internet.
Kino`s Travel depicts a fifteen-year-old girl who is traveling the world on her bike. She explores countries, towns, and cities for three days per place. The reason is that she is not comfortable with her surroundings, and she needs to change place frequently. This show can be compared to a tv show called Mushishi, but we think that Kino`s Travel is way better. This is the best show for those who prefer mystery, violence, and philosophy.
If you are a fan of Anime who is focused on ancient civilizations, this is the show for you. It revolves around an ancient relic called Tattoo’s which is in danger of being captured by main antagonists of the series, called the Kingdom. So, it is up to a martial artist called Justice to save the day. Every episode of this show is action-packed, so we highly doubt you will be bored.
Psycho Pass is definitely one of the best dark anime out there. Since you start watching it you will be sucked into the story, and you will stay focused until the last episode of the show. It is action-packed, it features a lot of interesting plot twists, mysteries, violence, etc. It has a pretty interesting story, which is surely one of the best you will see on any Anime.
Anime called Death Parade tries to give you an answer to what happens to you when you die. Naturally, it answers that question with a plot twist that is really interesting. When you die, you are sent to some kind of purgatory, which is located between heaven and hell. In purgatory, our characters are tested and, in the end, they are placed in some of these two places.
In Anime called Future Diary, characters are forced to play a game on which their life depends on. When they die in a game, they die for good. Also, each character has its own stories, and more importantly, each one of them has its own problems and perks. It has a very interesting lead character called Yuno Gasai, who is clingy and extremely insecure.
